  1. WC in Russia

    As far as I'm aware we have no proof so far but if we decide Russia are to blame for the nerve agent attack should we consider boycotting the world cup? One thing is obvious to me about the whole incident is that virtually none of the protocols for a chemical incident were followed. Why it...
  2. Thatchers Children

    To save hi-jacking the Brexit thread I thought people might like to explain who they first voted for and why. Lets keep it to your personal reasons so no need to repeat to many grand and well covered anti Thatcher rants etc. I had left school in 1981 so my first vote was for Labour in 1983. If...
  3. Good article -

    in present circumstances its easy to just see the political spin on this piece but fair play to the young professionals featured - Elvis, Harry K and Dru have all been introduced to league 1 football and all could probably go and earn a living from the game for the next ten years - and of...

    The strange case of the glamour photographer and his deselection as a labour candidat

    Surprised no one had picked this story up, which I saw in last week's Echo. It surely has two major elements for attracting our attention............sex and politics! :smile: http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/15547569.Labour_activist_banned_from_standing_in_election_over____Page_3____career/...

    Theresa May - Dead woman walking?

    The old adage of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer appears to have finally backfired for Theresa May where Boris Johnson is concerned. I don't pay anywhere near as much attention to politics as I used to, but it does look as if Theresa has lost a lot of confidence and respect...

    Should footballers retweet political statements? Discuss.

    Eye, Eye, Aïe!!!

    Just a word to let people know that I haven't disappeared willingly from either the political or football scene. Underwent eye surgery on Wednesday in a clinic just outside Toulouse. I've been told not to use the computer for a while, whilst I work to expel a ball of gas in the right eye (some...
  8. Political food

    Hot on the heels of Napster's condemnation of a Carrot Cake as food loved by Maoists, what other everyday foodstuffs do you think are drawn to one political allegience. I do love an avocado, but their green skins look like something Hugo Boss designed for Adolf Eichmann back in 1936. Dirty...

    Michael Gove

    As time moves on from Michael's dishonourable discharge from the Tory front ranks, he is just now slithering out from under the political rock he has been sheltering under. A few newspaper interviews, some sort of non job to do with Brexit and David Davis's team and now a Sunday morning...
  10. German Terrorism

    I thought I would start this thread following Rigsby's genuine post to move away from the Nice one. (it's not political as such.. hence me posting it here.. although mods, please feel free to move it, if the responses move that way?) Anyway it seem's to me, that the German government / security...

    Husband needed

    I apologise for the length of the post but I'm curious to see if anyone fits the bill. ​** This marriage advert is clear, legit & real. ** When the true fate brings someone special related to your soul, distance is not an issue with cars & airplanes. I am looking for a true nice...

    Question Eurovision

    What a load of rubbish that was last night. An instantly forgettable winner, however political a subject it may have been. The inclusion of Australia was farcical. An excellent production by the Swedish, as reasonable a song from us as we've had for many a year and a real change to the voting...

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...

    Michael Caine's political maxim.

    There was an article in the Times this morning in which Michael Caine said that he didn't trust anyone who was left of Tony Blair or right of David Cameron. Sounds like a sensible political judgement to me.

    The EU Referendum

    Despite being a keen advocate of leaving the EU, I have yet to see from either in or out Camps a firm vision of what the UK will look like further down the road, if we stay or go. What are our political parties plans should exit go ahead?....or indeed if we stay (more political integration...

    The Clock Ticks On

    From Mark Steyn: The world divides into those who sincerely believe in that "Coexist" sticker and those who think it's a delusional evasion. After all, if it weren't for that big Muslim crescent "C" at the front, you wouldn't need a bumper sticker at all: That peace-symbol "O"? It's Muslims...

    Privilege - and what it really means

    Have been having a bit of a row on FB with one of hubby's ex colleagues who used to be a good laugh but has become pretty much of a political activist, pre-election for the Greens, but subsequently for Labour, and in particular for Corbyn, plus organising rallies for "#Black lives matter". She...

    The Guardian Exposed

    The next time a link to The Guardian is rammed down your neck by those that would eat the rich, demand socialism and deny choice, then consider this. A list of Guardian contributors who demand equality for the downtrodden but have, of course, never experienced hardship and never will. I give...
